Walking in the snow with my new snowshoes....

Snow !!! yes it snowed in the Chicago areas yesterday, and today was my first chance to bring out my brand new snowshoes. I have watched 'Youtube' videos on "how to walk" and "how to get up if you fall" so I thought I was pretty ready. I wasn't sure how many layers I needed to wear so I dressed like I was going skiing. (my hubby told me to take my phone,just in case)
With little difficulty putting on the snowshoes (no direction came with my equipments) I was off.
It felt so good to be outdoors right after it had snowed. Everything looked and felt so pristine. Walking in my snowshoes was a lot easier then I first thought, but I kept sinking into the snow a couple of inches and every time I picked up my feet I brought up not only my snowshoes but also snow as well. Even though we had really fluffy snow, it added some weight and my legs started to feel the pain.
Luckily my friend "the fat squirrel" came out looking to see what I was up to, so I took this opportunity to stop for the day and get him some peanuts...
